My broad area of research is control system and its applications. The following major research works are already reported or being carried out:
1. Proposed open-loop decoupling based compensation method, which converts a MIMO control design problem into compensation of SISO units. For these SISO units, continuous-time periodic controllers are used for superior compensation of non-minimum phase MIMO plants. The class of MIMO plants for which the above decouple-based LTI control is equivalent to MIMO LTI control from H-infinity performance point of view is under investigation.
2. Employed decentralized periodic controllers to compensate MIMO systems with unstable decentralized fixed modes, where LTI decentralized controllers cannot be used. Still efforts are being made on this topic to obtain ripple-free responses.
3. (LQ or H-infinity) optimal continuous-time/discrete-time SISO/MIMO periodic controls are being designed to achieve superior performance of non-minimum phase plants. Attempts are also being made to synthesize periodic controllers for uncertain plants.
4. Used MIMO or centralized PID controls for MIMO systems. The centralized PID controllers perform much better than commonly used multi-loop or diagonal PID controllers because of having PID gains in the cross terms of the former. Some LMI based design methods of MIMO PID controllers proposed are already reported.
5. In parallel, applications of the above research works are being carried out. Some are already published. These applications range from laboratory scale benchmark systems such as inverted cart-pendulum, magnetic levitation, twin rotor mimo system, quadruple tank system etc to large scale systems such as missile autopilot, fusion tokamak etc.
